Luxury Award for the 2016 Mazda CX-9

Mazda may not officially be a luxury brand, but that doesn’t mean it can’t win luxury awards. In fact, EBONY Magazine gave a luxury award for the 2016 Mazda CX-9. The CX-9 earned the “Pretty Boy” award from among a new fleet of luxury-oriented vehicles arriving in the market.

With its all-new Signature trim level, the CX-9 moves upmarket and delivers Nappa leather seating with rosewood and real aluminum trim throughout the interior. On the outside, the CX-9 beautifully wears Mazda’s KODO-Soul of Motion design theme, which is enhanced by the new Machine Gray color, giving the crossover a liquid metal-like appearance.

“From its proud grille to its dual exhaust, and everything in between, we’ve designed a vehicle that paints the direction for where we want the Mazda brand to go, now and in the future,” said Julien Montousse, director of design, Mazda North American Operations, in a statement. “We’re honored to be recognized by EBONY, as we believe CX-9 is a bold crossover that makes a statement in its segment.”

The 2016 Mazda CX-9 will go on sale soon so make sure to stop on by or call in if you have any questions for us here at Parks Mazda.. If you have been searching for a luxury vehicle with beautiful styling, we’ll let you know as soon as the CX-9 arrives.

2016 Mazda CX-5 Sees More Standard Features

2015 was great for Mazda and the automaker is looking to keep that trend moving upward in the New Year! That’s why the 2016 Mazda CX-5 is getting a mid-model-year update shortly after its mid-cycle refresh for the 2016 model year. Dubbed “2016.5,” the model brings more standard equipment to the road.

All CX-5 crossover models are getting a backup camera free-of-charge provided they’re equipped with an automatic transmission. That means every model except the base Sport, with a standard six-speed manual, will come with the $400 backup camera without adding to the cost of the vehicle. Mazda know’s how to keep deals with the customer in mind.

The Rear View Camera package includes a seven-inch touchscreen audio system, which is a standard feature as well. Upper-level trims already have the backup camera as a standard feature, but Mazda isn’t forgetting them in all of this love!

The upper-level CX-5 trims will receive navigation as a standard feature. The Touring model now includes heated front seats as a standard feature. Previously, the upper-level models included at $1,625 Technology package. Now, with navigation as a standard feature, that price has dropped $400 to $1,275.

Make sure to stop on by if you have any question. Now let’s be honest, that’s a steal if you ask anyone here at Parks Mazda!

Choosing a New Year’s Resolution

If you didn’t do so well with 2015’s New Year’s resolution, you have another chance to take a stab at it in 2016! Whether your goal was unachievable or you simply couldn’t stick to it, it may be a good idea to start small this year. If you aren’t sure where to begin, take these ideas from us here at Parks Mazda! Happy New Year!

Resolution

  • Learn a Language. Studying a new language isn’t the easiest thing in the world, but it doesn’t need to be incredibly difficult either. Sitting down and focusing on your studies for half an hour a day will result in major progress by the end of the year. You can study many languages for free online as well! So what’s stopping you?
  • Get in Shape. Before you set up that gym membership, think about whether or not you’ll be able to use it often. If not, it may not be worth the money. You can get plenty of exercise on your own. Walking every other day or going for a run is a great start to a healthy lifestyle!
  • Pick Up a Book. With the bustle of everyday life, odds are you haven’t picked up a good book recently. Change that in 2016. Dedicate yourself to reading a book a month and, once you get into the groove, increase the volume! New adventures await you in this year of opportunity!

Just make sure you stick to your regiment- that can be the most difficult part. Dedication and belief in what you’re doing are just as much your goal as the resolution itself. Once you’ve conquered one on your list- you’ll find you’ve accomplished so much more.

The 2016 CX-3 Design is Powerful and Efficient

2016 CX-3 design

Mazda is starting engine production at a new power-train plant in Thailand, which it has named the Mazda Power-train Manufacturing Company. This new production base for SKYACTIV engines was created in response to an Eco-Car program created by the Thai government, which rewards tax breaks to fuel-efficient vehicles, such as the CX-3.

Speaking of-the new 2016 CX-3 design comes with a powerful but efficient engine with the high-tech SKYACTIV system. This compact SUV is one of Mazda’s most powerful, according to Automotive World, giving drivers the perfect combination of performance and practicality.

“Mazda is committed to producing vehicles in this country at the same high-quality level as we do in Japan, and delivering to market products that offer Mazda’s unique driving pleasure, in a timely manner,” said Kiyotaka Shobuda. “In doing so, we will further contribute to the development of the Thai automotive industry and enhance the Mazda brand.”

The new manufacturing plant is designed to assist production of the new CX-3 model, starting at $19,960 MSRP in the US. It also comes with three trim selections, as well as off-road and i-ACTIVE all-wheel drive options.
